Student Chapters can potentially accumulate large sums of money through fund-raising and other special events. To appropriately declare this income, each chapter must obtain an Employer Identification Number (EIN). In order to obtain funds from OSA, each U.S. Student Chapter must provide their EIN on all check request forms. Once a chapter has been assigned an EIN, a chapter officer should send it to OSA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
